Our Official Newsletter

... from the principal's desk ...

Dear Hoffman families,

We hope this newsletter finds you well and that this summer has been fun and restful!

We have been busy getting the building ready for the 2023-24 school year and are excited to welcome your children. We cannot wait for a year of academic and social/emotional growth for each child, and all the fun that is in store.

Workers are busily doing construction at Hoffman right now to create beautiful new classrooms for our children for next year! Check out the video on our school facebook page to see the amazing amount of work!

This newsletter is full of important information for you for the start of the year, so please read and mark your calendars!

Take care,

Selene Stewart

A BIG THANK YOU to the families that have already purchased supplies for your child/children for the 2023-24 school year!

We appreciate your support with our school supplies program! As has been shared, the goals of this program are as follows:

  • To provide the same, high quality supplies, on the first day of school and throughout the school year for 100% of our students.
  • To provide teachers with the brands and quantities needed on or before the first day of school.
  • To provide families with a substantial cost savings by reusing items, leveraging our buying power, providing free shipping, and using our tax exempt status.
  • To support a greener school by providing less waste, less packaging.
